Better send Angela a picture of the Bowey piece, I am sure she will appreciate on her travels.

:shock:  :shock: I put my 7" high blue Escher print hankerchief vase on Ebay this afternoon.  It sold immediately!  :D  :D

The link is too enormous to put on here, but it was Ebay No.7416886092

I think we can safely say that Chance glass IS collectable!   :shock:  :D  :D  :D

<very big smile!>  :D

Thanks to David for a great Chance Glass site, I'm sure it helped.  :D

Max one should be careful about making assumptions based on anecdotal evidence, the case is still far from proven :twisted:

As a matter of interest, I currently have 118 different types of Posy Vase identified. This includes patterns, colours and sizes, and the 'Antique' textured range.

Some one let me know when you have every one and I'll come and take a photo! :shock:  :lol:

Ohhhhh sounds like a challenge!!

Quick head count reveals only 40 maybe a little shopping is in order. Might have to blow the budget though dont think I'll get an escher or psychadelic for £8!!!

Hi K, I was fortunate enough to get my Escher for just a tenner but it had small chip on the inside rim. Very difficult to find though! But I have seen them going quite cheap recently (not the Physco ones though!)

Incidentally, the official name for the Escher is actually Carré — sorry not shouting but just so you can see the accented 'e' properly :P Apparently they never sold well, hence the reason they're now so collectable.

Hey David  :D

I actually spoke to my Mum last night  :shock:, you'll remember she's a mad glass collector?  She reminded me she has three large hankerchief vases in her wardrobe (where else? lol)...

One's yellow gingham and the others are plain.  Looks like I'll have to sell them for her.  :P  :wink:
